Subject Re: Log4j2 Backwards Compatibility

There is no current support for the previous format, but the docs do give
examples on how to convert to the new format:


Patches are always welcome to add support for the old config format, but
it's non-trivial. The new formats are very similar to the old, so it's
probably not too hard. I bet an XSLT could be made to convert the XML
format automatically for most use-cases.
